Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TJI - Scar-Fire Aud


This aud is a snippet of the second set containing the infamous "Scar-Fire" from the New Yorker article. Regardless of whether this is really a Jerry Moore taping, it is a fantastic sounding aud that could easily be confused for a matrix. I so no reason why anyone would need a matrix with an aud that sounds like this, its that good.

As for the Scar-Fire, i have always liked this one and if I ever made a top five list, it would be in it. Nice Scar with some inspired Jerry playing and the same could be said for the Fire. However it has always been the transition jam that has set this one apart. I don't know if its because of Brent's organ, but this one always sounded fuller to me than the '77-'78 transitions. Not having Donna's moaning also doesn't hurt. But my favorite part of the transition jam is the last few seconds when they actually transition into Fire. You can hear Phil is already playing Fire a few seconds before everyone else, especially Jerry who is still soloing away, but Jerry hears where Phil is and seamless syncs his solo with Phil into Fire. The audience approves! Unfortunately the track change is smack in the middle of this so if you are streaming you might get a little delay detracting from the magic.

I don't think i will be using the term Scar-Fire after this post. Its goofy.

I had to see to which ScarLET>Fire you referred: I also love 4.13.84's version & that show has a recording just in. I haven't yet checked the '84 out...

...but, having seen both performances, I'd have a hard time choosing between the two. Search out the entire '80 show (try http://archive.org/details/gd1980-11-30.110936.mtx.chappell.sb31.flac16 )- it would have perhaps been my best first set of the 80s. The UJB encore alone makes it a must-listen...

To hijack this in a much better direction (away from B&B):
try the Spring '80 visit to the Fox (http://archive.org/details/gd1980-04-29.SonyECM250.walker-scotton.miller.88872.sbeok.flac16)
or the night before (pick one: http://archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22Grateful%20Dead%22%20AND%20date%3A1980-04-28*&;sort=-publicdate)

He said "Brents organ"
Thats even better than Scar-Fire
Gonna give it a spin anyway. Why not? Thanks for the pointer.

That is a tasty Scar-Fire big Kahuna burger. I really like that PITB too.
Thanks again and dont listen to SDH (he's a nutter)...

Now THAT's a hijack I can get behind.

A thousand apologies for where this side-road is surely headed.
